Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent, a penitential season in the Church. Ash Wednesday is a day to reflect on our sins and turn away from them. In the Bible a sign of repentanc…e was to gird yourself in sackcloth and ashes. The ashes received on the forehead are given with the words "Remember you are dust, and unto dust you will return" although sometimes parishes will use a more cheery "turn away from sin and be faithful to the gospel." The ashes are meant to be a sign of repentance and a reminder of our mortality. The ashes received are from palm leaves from last Palm Sunday being burned. Through this we are reminded of the entrance into the season that will end with the memorials of Jesus' death and resurrection. For more information, you can visit EWTN's page on Ash Wednesday or view This Rock magazine's history of Ash Wednesday at the sites below.
Answer Wednesday comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English Wēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden who was a god of the …Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century.

Spy Wednesday: the word means exactly what we think it means. It's …a reference to Judas's action in Matthew 26: 14-16: Then went one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, to the chief priests, and said to them: What will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you? But they appointed him thirty pieces of silver. And from thenceforth he sought opportunity to betray him. The beginning of Matthew 26 seems to place that event two days before Good Friday. Thus, a spy entered the midst of the disciples on Wednesday of Holy Week, when Judas resolved to betray our Lord for 30 pieces of silver.
It came from the Middle English word "Wodnesday" which means "Woden's Day". Woden is a god that the Anglo-Saxons in England believed in

Because of Woden, aka Odin, the leader of the Norse Gods. Wednesday is a corruption of "Woden's Day". Wednesday through Friday are named for Norse Gods.
It was hot...very good fishing weather.
It is the first day of Lent in the Christian Church, a day which is always a Wednesday.
Maybe it will be spelled that way one day. Wednesday celebrates the god Odin, in the same way that Thursday celebrates Thor and Saturday celebrates Saturn. So at one point the… day was referred to as Odin's Day, or Wodin's Day. Pronunciations changed over the centuries, and spelling has become more or less standardized roughly over the last century. As English continues to grow and change, the spelling of the day may become Wensday, or maybe even Ensday. But even in these spellings, you can still see how the word stays connected to its roots in the name Odin, or Wodin.
the abbreviation of Wednesday is WED.
